I was raised in a family that can bake well, but not cook. I now have my own family with 3 little girls and found myself in a macaroni & cheese rut and becoming very frustrated and bored with dinner. Then I found this website!! Being a mathematician at heart, I love taking a recipe and then changing the equation to fit our family tastes. I have fun and love cooking while my family has loved the results. No longer bored!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken dishes, pasta dishes and anything with potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Letting my girls help and watch in the kitchen whenever they want so they will not be intimidated to try something new as they grow up.
My cooking triumphs
The first time I made homemade Chicken Noodle Soup...the girls thought it was the best thing to buy a whole chicken at the grocery and then they watched every step. It was such a fun experience and at dinner they announced it was the best ever.
My cooking tragedies
Egg salad. I love it but have not found a recipe yet that I love. Mine comes out different every time because I do not measure anything when I make it and would just love to have a great recipe for consistency.
